Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an innovative scanning system that produces highly detailed images of the retina, the innermost layer of the interior of the eye. This instrument can “see” below the surface of the retina to examine the retinal layers. These pictures allow our ophthalmologists to identify and treat problems in the best possible way.
With the OCT, we can detect glaucoma and other abnormalities of the retina, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), detached retina, macular holes, diabetic macular edema and more. The OCT never touches the eye, so there is no discomfort and requires only minutes to scan the eye.
